Spinning an Apple until it Explodes at 28,500fps - The Slow Mo Guys
Compressed air can be used to levitate rounded objects. Sometimes said rounded objects start spinning so fast that they give up on being round objects. Gav films all the action over 1000x times slower than real time. Check out KiwiCo.com/SlowMoGuys and get your first month free!

    Dan is still unable to enter the US by air due to Covid. Don't worry, though. I've heard reports that he went underground and started tunneling this way in April. - Gav

    This is why during the war bomb disposal crew were told that they wouldn't feel anything if a device were to explode whilst they were working on it. Our reactions are just too slow.

    It took around 4 seconds for him to close his eyes, i.e. react to the explosion. It looks so weird in slow mo. An apple explodes in his face and he is stonecold. For 4 seconds but still, interesting

    I wonder if you stop before the apple explodes, will the distribution of water inside the fibrous structure of the apple be different ? As in would it act like a centrifuge and push the juice to outer edge of the apple

    Watching the apples spin in air honestly kinda looks like someone did a really good job of photoshopping it in. I know it's not but it's so bizarre to see.

    After watching this video, I tried to figure out how fast the apple was spinning in mph. (Spoiler: 92.1 mph.) The math: Circumference = 2 * pi * radius. 2 * pi * 6cm (the radius of the average Apple) = 37.6991cm circumference. The Apple rotates ~37cm in one rotation. 6565 Rotations per minute * 37.6991 = 247,494.669 cm per minute 247,494.669/100 = 2,474.94669 meters per minute 2,474.94669 * 60 = 148,496.802 meters per hour There are 1,609 meters in a mile 148,496.802 / 1,609 = 92.1 mph. If I messed up somewhere please let me know!
